Retinopathy?


#1

I talked with my family nurse today,and they have found something - bacround retinopathy. Some small “spots”. I am starting with a pump next month. Gives me a little bit comfort. But the question is - is there a little chance that it reverses? Dissappears? :confused: cried a lot before i came to work… 21 years without no complications… And this happens.

You may wish to consider having a fluorescin angiogram done. It's similar to the way an opthalmologist checks the back of your eyes, but more thorough and complete.

It serves two principal purposes:

(1) It's more detailed than the standard test, and

(2) Since the test involves actually taking a picture of your retina which is then kept on file, it supplies a benchmark to compare against, to help track whether you are getting worse, staying the same, or improving.
